Breast Revision Allows Patients to Change their Breast Surgery Results

Known for her immense amount of plastic surgery procedures, former reality television star Heidi Montag has once again shown up in the latest pop culture news following her recent breast reduction surgery. She decided to undergo breast revision surgery to reduce the size and volume of her breasts and minimize the physical limitations her current implants were presenting. While Heidi has received much attention from the press over the years for her drastic plastic surgeries, double board certified plastic surgeon Dr. David Whiteman advises patients to always maintain realistic expectations and aim for natural-looking results.

breast reduction atlanta gaAt Southern Plastic Surgery, Dr. Whiteman performs breast revision to help patients who are no longer satisfied with their breast augmentation results. Patients who are unhappy with results from a previous plastic surgeon or who simply change their mind and wish to exchange their implants can choose breast revision surgery. Heidi chose to exchange her implants for smaller, more proportional ones to alleviate the back and chest pain she felt from the large implants. Other factors such as weight gain and/or loss or the effects of pregnancy can also cause a patient to seek breast revision surgery.

In addition to breast revision surgery, Dr. Whiteman can also perform a breast lift (mastopexy) to restore sagging breasts to a more youthful position. A breast lift can be combined with breast reduction or augmentation for complete rejuvenation. It is important to discuss your goals and ask any questions during an in-person cosmetic consultation.   To further maximize patient satisfaction following any procedure, Dr. Whiteman believes in adopting and maintaining a healthy lifestyle after surgery to prolong those results.

Studies Show High Satisfaction Rate with Brazilian Butt Lifts

Butt augmentation has received added attention as more patients have become interested in enhancing the size and curve of their buttocks. There are many diet and exercise programs dedicated to helping women achieve their ideal shape, but often these cannot achieve the results patients are seeking. Double board certified plastic and reconstructive surgeon Dr. David Whiteman performs buttock augmentation through a technique known as a Brazilian butt lift. Brazilian butt lifts use fat transfer to harvest unwanted fat from other areas of the body to re-inject to the buttocks.

brazilian butt lift atlanta gaAt the most recent meeting of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS), research presented show that women who had undergone buttock augmentation with fat transfer are highly satisfied with no reports of major complications. Buttock augmentation with fat transfer is known colloquially as a Brazilian butt lift. Dr. Whiteman performs this body contouring procedure by first removing unwanted fat through liposuction from areas such as the abdomen, thighs, back, or hips. The fat is then purified and re-injected to the buttocks for natural enhancement. Dr. Whiteman prefers this augmentation technique as it uses the patient’s own fat, significantly decreasing the risk of complication and providing more natural results.

Also in the article, ASPS discusses recent news media covering the rise in illegal buttock injections and reminds patients to always seek an experienced, board certified plastic surgeon to perform their surgery. By thoroughly conducting your research and finding a board certified plastic surgeon to explain the procedure and answer your questions, buttock augmentation can be performed safely with long-lasting butt augmentation results.
